Overview

Book
This superb, easy-paced trekking holiday has been refined and extended for 2017 and provides the perfect introduction to the foothills of the Nepal Himalaya. We start out with a city sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, before flying on to Nepal's second city, Pokhara. Six days of trekking then takes us to some of the prettiest villages in the valley of the Modi Khola, on the south side of the Annapurnas. Staying in comfortable and characterful Ker and Downey lodges, with twin-share rooms and en-suite facilities, we will be able to enjoy some of the most picturesque landscapes in Nepal.

Lush, green farmland, terraced fields, tumbling streams, smiling villagers and the backdrop of some of the world's great peaks, including Annapurna 1 and the stunning 'Fish Tail' peak of Machhapuchhre. Walking through rhododendron forest, with tree orchids, magnificent magnolias and several species of monkey, we will stay each night at a different lodge, each with its own particular charm, great food and outstanding views. Returning to Pokhara, we spend a night at a very comfortable resort hotel, before making the short drive to the Newari village of Bandipur. Famed for the quality of its architecture, which dates back several hundred year, this is a great place to spend a couple of nights, do some exploring, meet the Nepali people and soak up those final views of the Himalayas. Our Ker and Downey lodge close to Bandipur is called the Three Mountain Lodge for good reason. Three of the world's 8000 metre peaks can be seen from our private balconies - Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. Using first class hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and absolutely the best standard of lodge available on the south side of the Annapurnas, this really is a 'pampered' one week trekking holiday.

Saskia from Rugeley 

This was my first trek (other than the odd day trip in the Peak District) and it was a fantastic experience and I won't forget it any time soon. Qatar Airways was superb - old-fashioned charm and service. The people (staff and people we met in general) in Nepal could not have been more helpful and friendly. The luxury lodges were good as was the food. My favourite meal was in Pokhara where we had the tradition Dhal Bhat which was served on delightful brass plates/ dishes. I was served more carbohydrates than I'm used to - but that was because of the daily trekking and the body's requirements - so it's best to 'go with the flow'. We had an excellent guide - Rabi Gurung, who helped me enormously and he went the extra mile for our group to make sure that all our needs were catered for. His English was very good and he kept us entertained with his superb knowledge of the mountains, flora and fauna and delightful stories during 'happy hour'. A charming and conscientious guide who is proud of Nepal and was keen to share his knowledge. Do add an hour here and there to the daily trekking timings and the road trip from Bandipur to Kathmandu took us 6.5 hours. Overall the itinerary was good and seemed to have been carefully thought out. A superb trekking holiday with creature comforts which I would recommend to anyone.
